Yes, you can ferry to the towns and you will. But, it's not the same as being in this gorgeous mahogany boat and getting up close to the shoreline to see the villas and learn about them. However, pulling up to Villa Balbianello and entering through that regal gate is the best part about the tour! A guided tour is required to see inside the villa and this is all part of the tour with Bellagio Water Taxi's. Luca and his Australian wife are wonderful guides and I might add that she sits on the dock in Bellagio and is a wealth of information about the area! We made our reservations there with her and they sell out quickly so make this you first order of business in Bellagio and you won't be sorry.

We only stayed in Bellagio for one night, and thankfully found Janine and Luca and took a group 1hr boat cruise of the breathtaking Lago di Como!! Janine provided us with lots of helpful hints to where else to go and what else to do in Bellagio with the short time that we had. Luca took the boat tour, which started at 6pm - a beautiful time of day to cruise the lake. The weather was cooling down and the views were spectacular. Luca's commentary and knowledge of the area, the villas around the lake and the lake itself was extensive, entertaining and appreciated. Make sure you don't forget your camera for this one. Take a jacket if you're there in the autumn/ winter months... but we had perfect weather mid September still. Prosecco was served on the boat also, which we enjoyed immensley... A perfect pre-dinner tour!!

We took the 21/2 hour tour that included the tour of the villa and it was fantastic. The boat was beautiful and took a nice sized group, not crowded. The villa's grounds and gardens were unbelievably beautiful and took my breath away. This tour is a must for anyone visiting the area. Lucca and his wife who run this tour do a great job and are very informative. Thanks!

If you are staying in Bellagio this is a trip not to be missed. Villa Balbionello is truly beautiful and no visit to it is complete without seeing the interior. Lucca and his wife Janine (yes she's an Aussie) combine a sightseeing trip on the lake in vintage, wooden boats with transport to this famous site, You are then met with a guide, it's all part of the package, who leads you through this former home full of rare and interesting furniture and artifacts. There is time to view the garden at the end. Charming Lucca provides an entertaining commentary en route.

We decided to take the sunset tour with a glass of sparkling. Jennine hooked us and Lucca skinned us. He was very entertaining and the tour of the lake and the villas was sensational. What a way to enjoy the lake with limited time. Thanks Lucca and jennine.
